If an insured lodges a claim after the vehicle insurance expires for an accident that occurred during the policy term, will the company reject the claim as invalid?

No, the claim will not be rejected! As long as the policyholder reports the incident with seven days of its occurrence, the claim will be valid. The insured must lodge an FIR along with all the required documents – this will also serve as evidence of the date of occurrence of the event. However, the claim can be denied if the policyholder fails to adhere to this procedure and timeline.
